Frol­ing happy to be back at home

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - RO­HAN O’NEIL

LO­CAL ju­nior Harry Frol­ing is rel­ish­ing the chance to play in front of his fam­ily and friends when the Townsville Heat face the Port City Power tonight.

The tal­ented 17- year- old lives and trains at the Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Sport in Can­berra and the Aus­tralian ju­nior player was ex­cited at the chance to wear the yel­low and blue dur­ing his time back home.

“In Jan­uary I played for Townsville in the un­der- 18 state cham­pi­onships but I haven’t had a chance to play any QBL this sea­son,” he said.

“I re­ally wanted to come back and play and we had to get few clear­ances from the AIS and the SEABL but I just thought it would be re­ally good to come back and play for my home club.”

Frol­ing played his ju­nior bas­ket­ball for lo­cal club Black­stars and he will link with a num­ber of former team­mates to try and help the Heat bounce back tonight.

“A lot of these guys I played with and knew when I was a young fella so it’s good to get back,” he said.

“I know their game and the style of play they like and it’s al­ways good to see my fam­ily and some friends in the crowd.”

Frol­ing is over 200cm tall and the son of former na­tional league play­ers Shane and Jenny. He is ex­pected to take up a schol­ar­ship of­fer with a col­lege sys­tem next year.

The Townsville Flames will face their tough­est test of the sea­son tonight when they play a Glad­stone’s women’s side that has lost just one of their open­ing 10 games.

Townsville will take plenty of con­fi­dence into their meet­ing with the com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers af­ter their own stel­lar start to the sea­son and a win tonight would im­prove them to 8- 3 in 2015.
